'One Bus Away' app lives on despite developer's graduationon October 12, 2011 @ 10:47 am (Updated: 10:57 am - 10/12/11 )
'One Bus Away,' an app that tells you when your bus is expected to arrive at the stop, has graduated and moved on to the real world.
But don't worry. University of Washington science graduate student Brian Ferris' PhD project will live on, thanks to the UW and local transit agencies.
Sound Transit, King County Metro, Pierce Transit and the UW will fund up to $150,000 to further develop and maintain the application for 13 months.
Sound Transit says 'One Bus Away' is used more than 50,000 times a week.
Ferris now works for Google in Zurich on mapping and navigation services.
